You can’t tiptoe when murder’s afoot…
It’s Bastille Day in Paris. The Happy Hoofers—Tina, Janice, Pat, Mary Louise, and Gini—are all set to kick off the fete by dancing the cancan on a beautiful sightseeing cruise down the Seine. As the leggy ladies soak in the magic of the city of lights, everything is magnifique…until a very important patron goes belly-up on the top deck.
On the heels of their French debut, murder takes center stage. The five daring dancers will need to step lively to stop the crafty killer fast…or their grand finale will turn out far more explosive than the fireworks over the Eiffel Tower…
Includes Fashion Tips And Tasty Recipes
What I Thought:
This is the third Happy Hoofer Mystery.  The Happy Hoofers get to go on many great excursions, and this time they are in Paris.  This one is a little different as most of the time they are entertaining on something that is traveling, like a boat or a train.  They also seem to get themselves caught up in murders a lot.  I like how each book is told from a different Hoofer's perspective, which lets the readers get to know each Hoofer a little better.  The writing was great as always, and the story flowed well.  I enjoy he relationship between the Hoofers also, they are really good friend to each other.  This one kept me guessing till the very end.   I always enjoy traveling with Happy Hoofers and look forward to their next adventure.
